Racism and ethnic discrimination in the United States has been a major issue since the colonial era and the slave era. Legally sanctioned racism imposed a heavy burden on Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latin Americans. European Americans (particularly Anglo Americans) were privileged by law in matters of literacy, immigration, voting rights, citizenship, land acquisition, and criminal procedure over periods of time extending from the 17th century to the 1960s. Many non-Protestant European immigrant groups, particularly American Jews, Irish Americans, Italian Americans, as well as other immigrants from elsewhere, suffered xenophobic exclusion and other forms of discrimination in American society.

Major racially and ethnically-structured institutions included slavery, Indian Wars, Native American reservations, segregation, residential schools (for Native Americans), and internment camps.[1] Formal racial discrimination was largely banned in the mid-20th century, and came to be perceived as socially unacceptable and/or morally repugnant as well, yet racial politics remain a major phenomenon. Historical racism continues to be reflected in socio-economic inequality,[2] and has taken on more modern, indirect forms of expression, most prevalently symbolic racism.[3] Racial stratification continues to occur in employment, housing, education, lending, and government.

Many people in the U.S. continue to have some prejudices against other races.[4][5][6] In the view of the US Human Rights Network, a network of scores of US civil rights and human rights organizations, "Discrimination permeates all aspects of life in the United States, and extends to all communities of color."[7] Discrimination against African Americans, Latin Americans, and Muslims is widely acknowledged.[8] Members of every major American ethnic minority have perceived racism in their dealings with other minority groups.[9][10]

look , things improved of course as far as racism is concerned , laws are put in place so you can't shoot blacks anymore for fun as in "good old days" ..............

but how much of it is cosmetic improvemant , improvemant for show and how much is substantial and real?

we still have gang wars over the slums of Chicago, Detroit or LA for that matter...........

i mean is it enough to declere we have no racism anymore?


i think not , lot of work have to be done to make it real, why coloured people present 80% of prisoners in USA?

from  gulags that have 3 million people we can clearly see coloured are more than overrepresented................etc etc etc

it is rather interesting phenomena indeed...........

Majority of Americans racist – poll
27 October, 2012


Hm... it would have been nice actually dig a little and find the original story...

ht tp://bigstory.a p.o rg/article/ap-poll-majority-harbor-prejudice-against-blacks

... but given that no real numbers were given like how many people were surveyed, or where they were surveyed (but given the pollers in question - I have a few ideas), I tend to treat this as another "Dewey Defeats Truman" Story.

As the late great Rick James said, "Cocaine is a hell of a drug".  It is also hell of a business, much like opium trade in Russia and Europe.

Seeing the law enforcement in South and Central America, Europe, and Russia... it could be a hell of a lot worse.

But what is the old line of thought - as long as it is not in my backyard... the {fill in the blank here} can do what they want to themselves...
